Cocoa À Trois

This dessert-y sipper in bartender Tony Abou-Ganim's "Vodka Distilled" has rich, chocolaty underpinnings, so “the drink will pair best with a New-World corn-based or wheat-based vodka rich in vanilla or cocoa elements,” according to Abou-Ganim.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Godiva chocolate liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Simple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp Sweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp Egg white
  • Garnish: Grated semisweet chocolate

Steps

  1. Add all of the ingredients in a mixing glass, and shake vigorously until blended (long enough to dissolve the cocoa powder).

  2. Strain into a chilled Nick & Nora glass, and dust with the grated chocolate.
